About me

Hello, I'm Liz!

Thank you for taking time to read about me, and my therapy approach. I earned my Master Degree in Social work with an emphasis in Mental Health in 2018 and am now a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Clients would best describe me as warm, kind, and reflective. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Treatment approaches that I find most beneficial are cognitive-behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, attachment theory, psychodynamic, mindfulness, and family therapy modalities. I find using activities to help clients gain skills in mindfulness are beneficial. This can include creative projects that are thought provoking, sometimes artistic, and most importantly increase awareness of who you are before the world got its hands on you. I will tailor our time together and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs!

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take the step, let's get started in writing a healthy and new chapter in your life.

I look forward to working with you!

Elizabeth understands the balance of being straightforward yet gentle. She’s warm and knowledgeable. She provides a variety of resources and activities to dive deeper during session and throughout the week. I’ve always felt seen, validated and heard. At the same time, she helps you to find avenues to dismantle your mental obstacles. She’s been the fan base and supporter to my mental health, even when I haven’t. One of the best therapists I’ve ever had.

She is very kind and understanding. She also makes sure that I am able to talk about what matters to me. I haven’t had much luck with therapists, but she is amazing.
